UNESCO’s Mission in the Preservation of Culture

UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, acts as a conduit for international collaboration in education, sciences, culture, communication, and information. With a mission to encourage knowledge exchange and idea-sharing, UNESCO contributes to mutual understanding and supports the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Emerging from the shadows of World War II, UNESCO was born from a collective vision to foster peace through intellectual solidarity. By promoting education, preserving cultural heritage, and advocating for universal human rights, UNESCO strengthens bonds between nations and cultivates a shared culture of peace. Today, its efforts remain as relevant as ever in a world facing new forms of intolerance and challenges to cultural diversity.
